Marcus Acilius Glabrio (fl. 1st century BC) was a Roman senator who was appointed suffect consul in 33 BC.

Biography[edit]

Acilius Glabrio was a Roman politician from the gens Acilia and a supporter of the Second Triumvirate. It is conjectured that he was the son of Manius Acilius Glabrio, the consul of 67 BC.[1] In 33 BC he served as one of the four suffect consuls who stood in for Octavianus after he stood down from the office. Acilius Glabrio probably held the office from July to October of that year.[2]

In 25 BC, Acilius Glabrio was appointed the proconsular governor of Africa.
